ACS collaborated with Warby Parker to construct this stunning site to be consistent with their existing corporate visual identity.
Originally home to a burger joint in the 1950’s, we addressed issues in the aging building to support a modern, high-volume restaurant.
Though the mission inside the building was one of hope, the building itself was an anchor in a forgotten area of Raleigh that over the years was lined with neglected buildings bordering the train tracks.
ACS was involved in the entire process of bringing this beauty to market–from the first steps of working with the developer, Asana Partners, to lead the exploratory demolition; to tending to the finishing touches just before the grand opening.
ACS found the beauty in a neglected, worn factory warehouse from 1950 and turned it into a vibrant, award-winning retail spot.
Modernized with updated structural details the building now bridges the history and warehouse-vibe of area, to the neighboring new development including modern office buildings and apartments.
True to brand, ACS and Patagonia restored this Pittsburgh building to its original glory in the city’s Shadyside neighborhood.
When Patagonia wanted to expand their square footage in Reno, they sought a space that had architectural value, a prime location and a space with design promise.
Adjacent to the elevated tracks, on the corner of Peace and West streets, this building was home to Lighting Inc. for over 65 years.
ACS transformed this forgotten structure on Raleigh’s North West Street into the neighborhood bar The Cardinal.
